2017 Handbook of Statistics

7th December 2017


Font size: -+

The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics was first launched in 1967. Over the past 50 years, the series has evolved to incorporate new statistics and ensure that readers have access to the best possible information available. The 2017 edition of the UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics continues in this tradition of excellence and innovation. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first edition of the UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics, UNCTAD is proud to launch this new, updated version. A new presentation style is designed to integrate the detailed and lengthy statistical time series available from the UNCTADstat data centre with summary tables, state-of-the-art charts, maps and modern infographics.

As with previous editions, the UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics 2017 continues to provide a wide range of statistics and indicators relevant to the analysis of international trade, investment and development. Reflecting the importance of maritime statistics, this edition of the Handbook also includes a new chapter dedicated to this critical topic. Reliable statistical information is indispensable for formulating sound policies and recommendations that may commit countries for many years as they strive to integrate into the world economy and improve the living standards of their citizens. Whether for research, consultation or technical cooperation, UNCTAD needs reliable and internationally comparable trade, financial and macroeconomic data, covering several decades and for as many countries as possible. The Handbook and the databases available through UNCTADstat provide those data.


The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics provides users – policymakers, research specialists, academics, officials from national Governments, representatives of international organizations, journalists, executive managers and members of non-governmental organizations – with access to internationally comparable sets of data, in addition to facilitating the work of the UNCTAD secretariat. The Handbook also presents a summary overview of the statistical time series available from UNCTADstat.
